STEP - What is it?
The Student Training for Entrepreneurial Promotion (STEP) is an action-oriented entrepreneurship training with a focus on sustainability. Within 12 sessions, interested students learn about the entrepreneurial process through an actual start-up project in teams. This will help you gain confidence in your entrepreneurial skills and build startup competencies.
In addition, you'll gain the evidence-based knowledge you need about starting up. And in the end you will know much better if founding is something for you!
When and how does STEP take place?
STEP will take place in the summer semester of 2023 and is aimed at students, doctoral candidates, and employees of the universities in the Startup Port. The mandatory kick-off for the training is 05.04.2023 (17:30-19:30). Registrations are possible until 15.03.2023.

Fuck Up Talk, 21.03.2023
The failure of a heart project: Eugen Gross, founder of Aiconix, an AI platform for media content, tells how to deal with it. After a successful founding and successful fundraising, his company fails when faced with the challenge of raising follow-up financing. In this fuck-up talk, he tells you why the product and the company are still being continued and how he deals with the ups and downs of founding a company, but also with failure. Honestly, Eugen shares his lessons with you, which he was able to draw for himself as an entrepreneur but also personally.
Finn Peters, lawyer and specialist lawyer for insolvency law, gives you valuable tips and insights into the pitfalls that you can take into account at the beginning of your foundation, so that you are not held personally liable in the event of failure - and optimal solutions for your expected and the company to find.
You then have time to ask your questions in a Q&A session.
